It was only a few months ago when Luma Touch introduced version 2.3 of LumaFusion, an intuitive mobile video editor that allows filmmakers to create multi-track projects on Apple's iPads and iPhones. Now, the company has released version 2.4, which adds support for new features found on the iPhone 12.
In the update, LumaFusion adds full HDR support with 10-bit processing as well as support for HEVC transparency and an improved chroma and luma keyer that includes automatic color detection, mask display, and better erosion and spill suppression controls. The latter are useful tools for when you need to clean up green screen footage and other effects-laden sequences.
With iPhone 12 featuring Dolby Vision HDR, the addition of HDR support on LumaFusion is great. The app is capable of creating projects in HLG, PQ, P3, and Rec.709 10-bit color spaces. The one drawback to HDR content is that in order to enjoy it to its full extent, you must be watching on an HDR-capable screen.
Additionally, the ability to export H.265 with transparency is a nice touch and it will allow you easily to add animations to larger projects. There's also a new luma keyer with luma range that has options for rolloff, erosion, and edge blur radius control.
Other improvements include:
- Automatic project settings: Frame aspect, frame rate, and colorspace are set automatically when a clip is added to the timeline
- New menu button in the library allows you to add notes to clips
- Color selection uses the new system color picker in iOS 14
- Support for limited Photos access in iOS 14
LumaFusion is available for free for existing customers. For new customers, the app is priced at $30 USD in the Apple App Store.
